Having left the military, Dakota Jones is at a crossroads in his life. With his elder brother and youngest sister happily settled in Sullivan’s Crossing, he shows up hoping to clear his head before moving on to his next adventure. But, like every visitor to the Crossing, he’s immediately drawn to the down-to-earth people and the seemingly simple way of life.
Dakota is unprepared for how quickly things get complicated. As a newcomer, he is on everyone’s radar—especially the single women in town. While he enjoys the attention at first, he’s really only attracted to the one woman who isn’t interested. And spending quality time with his siblings is eye-opening. As he gets to know them, he also gets to know himself and what he truly wants.
When all the Jones siblings gather for a family wedding, the four adults are drawn together for the first time in a way they never were as children. As they struggle to accept each other, warts and all, the true nature and strength of their bond is tested. But all of them come to realize that your family are the people who see you for who you really are and love you anyway. And for Dakota, that truth allows him to find the home and family he’s always wanted.
The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr
Recently retired Army Ranger, Dakota Jones, heads to Sullivan’s Crossing to spend some time with his siblings. He is surprised with the connection that begins to grow between him and his sibs but is even more surprised by his attraction to the local bar tender…even though she’s giving him a tough time of it.
There is a lot of smiles and laughs but its tinged with the seriousness of growing up in a dysfunctional family and the effect it had on all the family members years later.
Dakota never set up a place to call home. Carr masterfully captures Dakota’s transformation from a traveling man to one who wants roots.
Carr is the queen of outstanding emotional contemporary romance storytelling. She writes sweet and fun capturing the down-home feel that makes the written words feel like your friends, family and the neighbor right next door.
